“The Bible… Fills Us With Eternal Joy”

Our St. George Church School year began with a morning matins service and church school blessing.  The children then planted bible gardens as a way to reflect on the Creative Arts theme for the school year — “The Bible… fills us with eternal joy.”  

“The Bible is a scented garden, delightful, beautiful, it enchants our ears with birdsong, in a sweet, divine, and spiritual harmony, it touches our heart, comforts us in sorrow, soothes us in a moment of anger, and fills us with eternal joy.” — St. John of Damascus

We are thankful to Deacon Glenn for building icon stands and to the St. George bookstore for donating icons for each classroom patron saint.  Each class will be using a curriculum published by the Orthodox Christian Education Commission.

The children are a joy and we look forward to another enjoyable and spiritually enriching year.
